The Consumer Electronics Show 2015 is in full swing in Las Vegas, Nevada, and IGN brings word from the tradeshow that new footage from the upcoming Avengers: Age of Ultron was screened intercut between interviews with the cast and crew of the highly-anticipated sequel. The new footage included:
- “A shot of what appears to be Ultron bots bursting through the walls of the train in the slow-mo Quicksilver sequence.”
- “Iron Man flies at the camera, leaving tumbling Ultron bots in his wake.”
- “A third sequence showed the destruction of a Samsung-owned building.”
The site reports that the featurette also showed off additional concept art for the titular villain, revealing some of the different stages he will go through before assuming his final form. With a new trailer for “Age of Ultron” set to debut next Monday, it’s likely we could be seeing these moments ourselves very soon.
When Tony Stark tries to jumpstart a dormant peacekeeping program, things go awry and Earth’s Mightiest Heroes, including Iron Man, Captain America, Thor, The Incredible Hulk, Black Widow and Hawkeye, are put to the ultimate test as the fate of the planet hangs in the balance. As the villainous Ultron emerges, it is up to The Avengers to stop him from enacting his terrible plans, and soon uneasy alliances and unexpected action pave the way for an epic and unique global adventure.

Jackson, Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Elizabeth Olsen, James Spader, Cobie Smulders, Thomas Kretschmann, Paul Bettany and Stellan Skarsgard.
